dready leg over ...




                       dready art 'leg over' - 36x15 - limited edition HD archival pigment print 

i found myself this week thinking about cricket ... i was at lunch with two men who had been to school together, and the chat turned to cricket somewhere along the line ...

i had been, but i never said so, on the first 11 at school ... 

but i was an interested but uncommitted yute (and not just with sports either!) ... 

i loved sports, enjoyed them, played them well, was strong, fast, agile - but but but that serious pursuit of excellence required by coaches and masters and parentals however was, for my constantly distracted self, unattainable ... 

if only you'd apply yourself ...

i found my head running back to the last day i played on the first 11 ... a late arrival, a dishevelled self, a lackadaisical swing at a well bowled ball, lazy fielding for a few overs ...

i wasn't invited back ... 

over 

and out ...
